The classic combination of coffee and cigarettes has been ingrained in pop culture, but Starbucks isn’t interested in perpetuating the zeitgeist. As of June 1, the company is banning smoking within 25 feet of its stores, according to news reports.
The ban affects the majority of company-owned Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada, according to NBC Los Angeles. A company representative confirmed to The Huffington Post that about 7,000 stores will be affected—both those that have outdoor seating and those that do not. The rule won’t apply to Starbucks that are housed in other stores, such as Target.
